Museum and Society

Museum and Society (M&S) is an independent peer-reviewed journal which publishes new writing and research by academics and museum professionals about museums in their social contexts.

The journal is both international in scope and at the cutting edge of empirical and theoretical research. Our objective is to explore the museum-society relationship in all its variety by encouraging research that represents the broad spectrum of the social sciences (anthropology, economics, educational studies, human geography, social psychology, and sociology). In this we think of the journal as a two-way street. On the one hand M&S is interested in how museum practice (past and present) resonates with issues and problems that are social in their nature. And on the other we are interested in how high quality and innovative work on museum-centred topics contributes to and perhaps resolves debates within the social sciences themselves.  Other practitioners and academics such as historians and philosophers with an interest in our vision for museum studies are also invited to join the conversation.

Museum & Society was launched in March 2003 by Gordon Fyfe, Kevin Hetherington, and Susan Pearce.
